The Rivercourt Hotel has a great position just over looking Kilkenny Castle. The terrace area is beautiful , very scenic with lovely views of the castle. It is right in the centre of Kilkenny, so park the car and walk everywhere. We booked dinner bed and breakfast for a very reasonable cost and we surprised with the choice and quality... More

My brothers wedding was on in this hotel, we celebrated over two nights. Day one was the big day with 230 guests, everything was to a really high standard- the food was delicious, the staff were so helpful and the rooms were perfect. Day two we had a BBQ - which was also delicious. The Rivercourt made our weekend a... More

All our small requests and details were noted. The menu was tailored to our needs. Our guests commented on the quality of the food, the older generation were... More

Hotel is in a lovely location in Central Kilkenny, on the riverbank. Open air restaurant section overlooks the river. Hotel is a bit dated in some ways, but well maintained. Staff excellent. Bar menu Caesar salad was dire, served with inedible soda bread which was hard and stale. No excuse for such lack of care and quality. Stayed just the... More

We stayed here one night during a 10 day trip to Ireland. I had read many reviews on the noise level but it was relatively quiet while we were there, probably because we were there mid week and not on a weekend. The check in staff was courteous. We had breakfast in the restaurant before we left. There was a... More

No help with luggage and had to park a fair way from the entrance even though we had a disabled badge. Kept awake by booming music from wedding until 2 a m. Another wedding due the next night so opted to move room. Had dinner on night of arrival and main course was inedible. Cold plate, over cooked beef and... More

Just come back from a long weekend at the Rivercourt attending a family wedding. The hotel is right in the middle of Kilkenny on the banks of the river Nore and a more beautiful setting would be hard to find. Our room had views of the river and castle. The staff are all amazingly friendly and efficient and actually seemed... More

We sat in the restaurant by the river and were enjoying the lovely views. We gave our order of two menu meals and two afternoon teas for a party of 4. Since there was little on the menu for two of the party, who are vegetarians, we asked that the afternoon tea excludes meat. One of vegetarians can't eat butter... More
